SHOW MORE


A firsthand description of pottery making by the Kangigmiut of inner Kotzebue Sound, and the manufacture by an informant of a dentate-row pottery baton, serve as a point of departure for examining ethnographic and archaeological data related to the manufacture of pottery in the region during the historic period. The use of modeling clay impressions of marked sherds from historic sites makes possible a detailed discussion and reassessment of marking during a period when the ancient technology of pottery making was about to disappear

Includes bibliographical references (p. 15-16)
